Hello doctor,

I am a young teenager who has a receding jaw and I am wondering if changing my eating habits might relocate my lower jaw. I used to have poor eating habits. I ate too fast and I did not chew much. My older brother's jaw is fine. Will changing my eating habits cure my jaw?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. You need to check if you chew one side or use both sides equally. Second what you think is jaw receding, sometimes it is a malocclusion which is associated with jaw disorientation. If your lower jaw is looking small or your teeth are placed backwardly, it will be checked only if you upload a picture of your jaw. No, there is no relationship between the chewing or eating habits that will precipitate at this age. I think you are having skeletal malocclusion or maxillary prognathism.
